           Santa Rosa Arangkada!!!!

Another milestone in the learning journey and experiences of grade three children achieved!!!

Education Program Supervisor in English, Ms. Cherrilyn T. Nabor once again spearheaded the launching of International Literacy Day with a theme “Literacy and Multilingualism” in the Division of Santa Rosa City, September 17, 2019.

This celebration aims to promote the love for reading and no wonder its highlights, Reading with Mayor Arlene and Reading with Ma’am Helen (Schools Division Superintendent) captured and sustained the interest of the select grade three pupils from 18 elementary schools of the Division. These activities are the much awaited event of the day. It is an extraordinary moment that the highest officials of the city and the DepEd Santa Rosa City join forces to become the storytellers for the children who made extra effort for wearing their national costumes of chosen countries. Evidently, a tremendous rapport between the storytellers and the children was keenly observed.

After the story reading time, they asked comprehension questions. Those who answered correctly took home prizes such as story books, toys and bikes! But wait, there’s more…….All the children will also have the chance to bring home tablets courtesy of Honorable Mayor Arlene B. Arcillas.

Indeed, a fruitful and memorable reading day was served to Rosenian children. (Melannie V. Rivas, Master Teacher I-Dita Elemetary School Santa Rosa City)
